Find yourself feeling uncomfortable in your bed and don’t know why? There might be something missing from your bedroom to make it complete? If so, then it might just be the right time for you to refresh your sleeping space. Follow these simpl steps to set up your bedroom fit for a good night’s sleep..
1. Let There Be Light…OR wait, Never mind.
If the sun wakes you up in the morning it’s one thing if you prefer it that way, but if you’re waking up too early because of the light, it may be time for some change. Install heavier drapes or even double layers if necessary. If you are using blinds: opt for darker hues of blue, red, purple or even black as darker richer colors are relaxing and easy on the eyes.
2. Feeling the Difference.
As the largest piece of furniture in most bedrooms, your bed plays center stage when it comes to decorating. When was the last time you bought a new set of covers? It’s time to take advantage of the spotlight. Go all-out with a fully striped comforter, or take it down a notch with a solid spread rimmed with a gold border. Keep the pillows simple, in solid white, black or a bright color. You want your bed to attract attention, not raise eyebrows, so keep the sheets, bed skirt and blankets solid, to avoid too much of pattern overload.
3. Do You Hear What I Hear?
Do you live with kids or pets? Do you live on a busy street? Can you hear your neighbor’s activities even when lying in bed? If so, then you are looking at a sound crisis! You can look at how your walls and windows are layered and insulated. You can remodel them to be thicker and your walls can be covered with plaster or certain sound proofing material / wall paddings available in the market to limit noise.
4. Creating a “Night Nest”.
A “night nest” is a way of setting up your room to fit all of your sleeping needs. Make sure you have a nightstand or table at an arm’s reach that can provide you with insomnia essentials (like magazines, earplugs, dim lamps etc.). Things to keep out of your night nest may be hard to give up. These include televisions, laptops, alarm clocks, radios, and ceiling lights. A station for these should be set beyond reach from the bed in the room.
5. Invite Yourself to the Party!
Decorate your bedroom with personal items like pictures, posters, special knickknacks that inspire you and make you feel warm. While selecting from the color palate, go for soothing, sleepy colors, not bright ones. If you like a warmer, darker feel go with browns, dark reds, or purple. If you like a more spa-like atmosphere, go with blues dark gray, or green!
